The bounty of our merlot vineyards is almost endless. In this wine the intensely concentrated, super-ripe fruit gives an almost syrupy consistency on the palate. One could easily be tempted to drink it upon release, but cellaring for a few years will leave the various elements - fruit, acid, oak and tannin-harmoniously integrated.
